nearly 1 million album sold this week and not even in Christmas time... I can't believe the selling power Adele has. Her album might end up at 30 million after all!

Quite possibly! This is her highest selling week worldwide so far, and it has been out over a year!

Freakin Adele handled some pretty good competition this week on the chartz. I go on billboard from time to time, which I cannot stand because they took away sales numbers. She is a beast in the music industry! Congrats to her.

His album wasnt released physically, so 65k is actually pretty good!



Adele is one of the very few female singers I just don't like. Similar to Taylor Swift, I find her boring. I don't see what is appealing about the music she performs.

So Adele has been number 1 in pretty much every chart in the world, here in Mexico 21 managed to be triple platinum with 21 and platinum + gold for Royal Alber Hall and that is a lot for a english album

                       Thanks Blacksaber for the sig                  Tag:"Nintendo es toda la diversión de esta generación"
